Disasters, in my experience, always bring out the patronizing aspects of our State masters.
Instead of productive citizens, we are now victims.
Instead of job holding community residents, we are now refugees who have lost everything.
Instead of offering a chance to use our minds and talents to assist in recovery, we are directed to a shelter and made to stand with the rest of the mindless rabble for our government ration MRE.
We were once self sufficient citizens. Now we are helpless children dependent on government aid.
Just the way our power elites like it.
